Stamp Information : CHILDREN'S DAY Children's Day is really every day, because those who are entrusted with the care of our children- be they parents, teachers, social workers, or simply benign old uncles and aunts- are constantly made aware of the presence of children, and cannot even for one moment neglect them or their many needs. Children are always hungry- not just for food, but for knowledge, adventure, friendship, fun- and it is the sacred duty of every adult Indian to try and provide them with the opportunities that lead to these things: not only for one's own children, but for all children near us, no matter where they come from or where they go. Jawaharlal Nehru, India's First Prime Minister, loved children, and understood their world. He could identify with a child's way of thinking; that is why children took him to their heart. It was a happy inspiration that brought about the celebration of Children's Day on the birthday of Jawaharlal Nehru. In former times, children were kept very much in the background of day-to-day living. But the children of today's India are aware of their importance. They paint, they write, they sing, they dance, they work and play with more enthusiasm than most adults, and they do so with great confidence that India is their country and that they will reap the good harvest of what we adults have sown for them. We cannot let them down. We must make this land a fit place for the fulfillment of their dreams and aspirations. (Text by courtesy: Ruskin Bond). Indian Posts and Telegraphs Department is happy to issue a special postage stamp on Children's Day, 1983.
